Picassiette:  Mosaic Art Using Broken Ceramics with Richard Youngstrom

Picassiette is the name given to mosaic art using broken ceramics. The name comes from “La Maison Picassiette” the home of an eccentric Frenchman who in 1930 began decorating inside and out with these materials. In addition to being inexpensive and easily obtained, broken ceramics often contain combinations of colors, patterns, images and textures that can inspire or enhance your mosaic creations, or repurpose unwanted but meaningful ceramics.

This class is suitable for all levels of skill and experience; it will cover ceramic sources, tips for manipulating the different shapes, curves, rims, bottoms, etc. and how to use ceramics for curved surfaces and sculptures. Some or all-of-these techniques and materials can be incorporated into your own mosaic style and creations. Participants will be able to complete a small mosaic project of their choosing during the class.

Participants are encouraged to bring in ceramic pieces they may want to use or learn how to manipulate (break). This workshop is limited to 12 people.

Chromatile By Cecilia Kremer

Explore the art of mosaics and surprise yourself with the professional mosaic pieces you’ll be able to create.

Two ongoing mosaic classes, with the most extensive and inspiring selection of tiles that you can imagine, meet on a weekly basis throughout the year. In these workshops, suitable for all levels, you will work on a project of your choice and at your own pace. If you are a beginner, you will start by learning basic mosaic techniques, such as design, cutting, adhesives, setting/layout of tiles, and grouting. You will have plenty of examples to get your ideas flowing. If you are an intermediate or advanced student, you will advance and refine your skills by practicing your own techniques and develop new ones. Your creativity, whether apparent or somehow hidden, will surprise you.

For more details and registration, please go to www.chromatile.com
